Reviews

"A highly readable analysis of why and how women become suicide bombers, and the reasons why some terrorist organizations deploy them as a weapon of last resort. Bloom's case studies will provoke passionate debate."-Paul Wilkinson, author of Terrorism Versus Democracy "Mia Bloom's Bombshell is a genuine contribution to our understanding of women and terrorism. It demystifies the myths about female terrorists, who often form the invisible infrastructure of terrorism."-Marc Sageman, author of Leaderless Jihad and Understanding Terror Networks "Engrossing. . . . This balanced, readable account offers invaluable insights into a hidden and disturbing world."-Publishers Weekly
